Jesus himself madethis known to us, when he said to his disciples, that if hedid not die, he could not send us the Holy Ghost: If Igo not, the Paraclete will not come to you- but if I go, I willsend Him to you, We know well by faith that the HolyGhost is the love that the Father and the Eternal Wordbear one to the other- and therefore the gift of love,which the Lord infuses into our souls, and which is thegreatest of all gifts, is particularly attributed to theHoly Ghost, as St. Paul says: The charity of God is pouredforth in our hearts by the Holy Ghost, who is given to us? Inthis Novena, therefore, we must consider, above all, thegreat value of divine love, in order that we may desireto obtain it, and endeavor, by devout exercises, andspecially by prayer, to be made partakers of it, since Godhas promised it to him who asks for it with humility:Your Father from heaven will give the good Spirit to themthat ask Him.MEDITATION I.Love is a Fire that inflames the Heart.
